Christ Church Newton offers Christian Education for All Ages

Sunday School & Youth Group

Christian Education is offered from September - June at 9:00 a.m. for children in preschool through high school. Students are divided into age-appropriate groups for instruction. Adults are invited to meet at 9:00 a.m. for a separate program.

Children in grades pre-school through sixth grade follow the "Living the Good News" curriculum which focuses on the gospel reading each Sunday; all children are invited to participate in the annual Christmas pageant, as well as a play which is performed in the spring.

Teens participate in numerous outreach activities throughout the year, culminating in semi-annual Youth Group trips to Panama following the Rite of Confirmation. Additional fun activities, like snow tubing and hiking, are held regularly.

Children are welcome in all aspects of our worship program, and are encouraged to participate as they are able. A professionally-staffed nursery is provided for those children who are not comfortable participating in the entire service.

Adult Bible Study

Bible Study for adults is held Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. from September - June, in the Church parlor. Summer Bible Study is held in the evenings; call the church office at 973-383-2245 for the schedule. Participants discuss the Gospel for the coming Sunday with the Rector, the Reverend Robert Griner.
